I get to start this gallery off with a lovely Egg-stravagant package from Betsy  Grin



She sent me a large box filled with goodies!   In it was this lovely Ostara wreath that I immediatly hung on my very naked and ugly front door.  The sun was shining today so I got a great picture.  There was also a painted bucket with instructions on a DIY Ostara tree.  The bucket add the foam in the bottom and I had the girls pick up some fallen branches while we were walking home from the bus stop.  I just stuck those bad boys in and trimmed them to my likeing.  Then I had the girls help me decide where to hang the eggs.  We stuck the little egg-y floral picks in and covered the foam with the fun paper grass. 



Here is a picture of the rest of the eggs on the tree and some other eggs she sent.  I think we will make a streamer/banner type thing with the pretty sequined ones.  The black ones are chalkboard painted eggs that I will write the girls names on and hide for them Wink  There was also a fun set of cookie cutters, adorable egg candles, and some paper mache base eggs for us to decorate ourselves! 

Thank you so much Betsy!  We love it all, and the girls can't wait to make more eggs for our little tree Smiley

Your tree looks fabulous. I really wrestled with how to make a tree to send you. The kit seemed the best way, lol. I hope you enjoy it all, and have a blessed Ostara. Smiley

Chalkboard eggs! That's really clever. Smiley I can think of so many uses for that - lunch treats, art abandonment, even passive-aggressive notes to loved ones. Well, maybe not that. And I like the sequinned eggs too - lots of possibilities for those.

I received from Ani today!! I love everything and it was right on time for Ostara!! Love it.

MY first thought was "wow this package is kind of heavy". lol.
I opened it and found this adorable tin.

Once I opened the tin this beautiful cloth just pulled me in. It had amazing eggs wrapped in it, but the cloth. The hand painted piece in the middle is so beautiful, it is already on my altar. Smiley


And the eggs.


Ani sent me these amazing bath salts, and I wish I could let you smell them, because they smell fantastic. I cannot wait to use them.

She also sent me a charged candle, holy water and chocolate!!

I love it all. Those eggs have the most beautiful colors. And the altar cloth is so fabulous. I love it!!
Thanks Ani!!

Yay! I am so glad it made it there! I love the compass rose pattern I got from Urban Threads.  ( I think they are on sale now too? I got the email after I had bought the pattern )  If the eggs stained the cloth (it looks a little discolored in the top corner?) You can try some stain remover and wash and dry it, I did twice just to make sure the fabric paint was set.   Cheesy  The bath salts recipe/tutorial is posted on the coven blog page too, I waited until your package was in the mail before I posted it.

Also I have the same table cloth on my dining room table, but in purple!
